Creative Writing Through History 

History week involved a creative writing focus throughout school. Year 1 and 2 were using their dinosaur topic to complete writing activities including letters and instructions. Year 3 and 4 used their topic, ‘Ancient Greece’ to write stories and design brochures using MacBooks. Year 5 were looking at the history of British law makers and the creation of Britains first paliament. They wrote chronological reports and conducted research into the Magna Carta. Year 6 were learning about The Battle of Britain and wrote diary entries, letters and news paper reports.
